It took 19 years and thousands of miles traversed across the globe before alumna Robyn Schilling (BEd ’92) and Gloria Irani-Patterson (BA ’93) again crossed paths. And while the stories of their post University of Lethbridge lives took divergent routes, the former roommates shared a sense of discovery and willingness for adventure that eventually led them back together – in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Some would call it luck, others fortune, but when her father, Dr. Keith Roscoe, accepted a position with the Faculty of Education at the University of Lethbridge in 1996, an entirely new world of possibilities opened up for Catherine Roscoe Barr (BSc ’02) and her future husband, Aaron Barr (BFA ’02).
When they began their academic adventures at the University of Lethbridge, co-owners of the newly formed Isis Geomatics Incorporated, Steve Myshak (BSc ’10) and Owen Brown (BSc ’09) were heading down very different career paths.
In fact, Brown wasn’t planning on staying at the University for long. Originally enrolled in pre-engineering, he intended to transfer to the University of Calgary to complete his degree there, but one semester in geography at the U of L and he knew he was hooked.
Not many people can truly say that they are number one, but Wayne Anderson (BASc ‘73) can. In fact, Anderson holds the honour of being the very first student registered to attend the University of Lethbridge back in 1957.

“We were U of L students in the 1970s when the University was still very new,” says Raymond. “We both grew up in southern Alberta, and were grateful for the opportunity to attend university in our hometown.”
The couple, who met while they were both students at the U of L, remember lots of opportunity to get involved.
